    Hi,

    My one peachick that managed to hatch out (and I did not think was going to make it) has a wing that droops.

    Is there any way to fix this? Can I tape it up or do you think with age it will get stronger and be normal.

    Any input would be greatly appreciated Thank you!

    I had one the same way. I think the wing just got too heavy, lol. I left it alone and she grew up just fine. She is now almost 2 and perfect.

    Thank you all very much. She has been a challenge. And now she is going to be fine. I am just so happy and relieved.

    Here is my babies wing. She dragged if for a while. Hopefully yours is the same thing. Just keep a good watch over her, make sure shes eating and drinking. Best of luck!
